best tethering/hotspot app?
What is everyones opinion on the best tethering app out there right now? I found quite a few, but have yet to try any out... I just need something which would allow me to use the phones data through my laptop.

Haven't tried MiWi yet, but probably will. PDANet was the last thing I installed before my phone started crashing every time I closed an app. Ended up having to restore and re-jailbreak.Verizon iPhone 4S white 32gb
Verizon iPad black 64gb + 4g
16gb white WiFi iPad 2
I think I will give MyWi 5 a try then. I saw it in Cydia, but would rather go off suggestions plus its kind of tough to find things in Cydia. The only time I will need it is when traveling, but I will definitely need it when the time comes.
Thanks for the suggestions!

for instance; i bought MyWi a couple of years ago. going by at&t's tethering rates i have saved a ton of $
one thing you, or anyone else, may want to consider though is if you are on a "Unlimited Plan" or not.. i am

that's the misconception of jailbreaking and the main reason why jailbreakers get a bad rap. yes, jailbreaking is the gateway to getting "stuff" for free but when you pay you also get the necessary support along the way
surely you like getting a paycheck when you work, don't you?
i have spent more in Cydia than i have in the App Store lol

I don't understand why people will pay $200 plus for a phone and $70 or more for service then cry about a $2 app (or a one time $20 fee like MyWi which can be installed on 5 devices). If you can't afford the app then don't buy the phone or the app.
Even worse are the people stealing apps, the devs work hard on their apps. Support them so they can keep making us great apps.
P.S. To answer the OP question. I like MiWi 5.0. It's faster than PDANet in my experience. I like the ability to install on 5 devices and I'd rather pay through Cydia so when I upgrade to a new device I can easily reinstall later on.

Does no one like TetherMe? I hardly ever tether, but to me TetherMe seems the best solution being that it is not a separate app, but just enables the stock hotspot option to work with a custom APN so it looks like its the phone itself. The need for a third party app seems silly when its already built in, no?

Also we're not stealing data, we're simply using the data we are paying for! How dare they charge us for data we pay for!!!!
I have unlimited data... As far as I'm concerned, that means I have unlimited data!!! Incan put that data wherever the heck I want!!
I remember having unlimited data when smart phones were just coming up, per android and note iPhone... I used vznavigator and got a ten dollar charge! I called and was like what the heck??? Why is there a charge? And was told because it uses data... I said I have unlimited data!!!! Then i was told its different data....
To this day Verizon STILL charges $10 extra a month for vznavigator on all it's devices!

I simply use the Google Navigation as my GPS software. You got it for free when you down load the Google Maps. It is pretty handy, even in walking distance like in the LA Downtown area to look for a bank ATM, and it guided me, it really saved my time.

Re: best tethering/hotspot app?
I'm also searching for a working hotspot app for my IPAD2, I've tried a few already but done seem to work. Firstly there was PDANet, no joy there, then there was Tetherme which does ot work over Wifi, I'm trying to connect an ATV to my 3G network to see if it wll work. Has anyone managed to get a wifi hotspot created on a IPAD2?
